in national efficiency that has been brought about by technology and the new fuel efficiency standards that were enacted by the bush administration and were increased by the obama administration. the report is not political in any way shape or form. it endorses things that are supported by the right in some cases and that are supported by people on the left. you cannot just take the parts that you like. you have to take the holistic approach, to maximize u.s. production and to reduce consumption partly by diversifying our transportation sector away from petroleum. the last thing i will say is that petroleum use in transportation is the pivot point of this entire problem. 70% of our use of petroleum in this country is for transportation. transportation is fueled about 93% of the time by petroleum. if you want to reduce the united states' dependence on imported petroleum and the related geopolitical issues, particularly in an issue when rising demand is creating a potential conflict for these resources, then you have to recognize transportation has to be diversified away from petroleum o
efficiency that's been brought about by technology and the new fuel efficiency standards that were enacted by the bush administration first, and then, of course, were increased by the obama administration. it's important to recognize that the eslc report is not political in any way, shape or form. it endorses things that are heartily supported by the right , in some cases, and on the other hand that are supported by people on the left. it's important to recognize you can't just take the parts that you like. you have to take the wholistic approach, which is to, again, maximize u.s. production and to at the same time significantly reduce consumption partly by diversifying our transportation sector away from petroleum. now, the last thing i'll say before we sit down is it's important to recognize that petroleum use in transportation is the pivot point of this entire problem. about 70% of our 18.7 million barrel per day use of petroleum in this country is for transportation, and transportation is fueled about 93% of the time by petroleum. so if you want to reduce the united states' dependence

to begin to reduce carbon emissions, have the united states for example lead the way in this new technology, especially energy transmission, energy storage, electricity, we could change the world. we could get everybody a much higher quality of life than they would otherwise have. the problem is so many people live near the coasts and they are very old economic reasons. people lived on rivers since the beginning of human history so as sea levels, as the world gets warmer and i take it he doesn't disagree the world's getting warmer. so ice is also falling off the ice sheets so that ice is up on land. this is also going to cause the sea level to rise. so for example, in the case of sandy, which was not an especially big hurricane, the economic impact was $30 billion and that's in the developed world where we have the resources to deal with it. when you have people displaced on a continental scale, we're not talking about a few people trying to get through a fence at a border between countries. we're talking about tens of millions of people trying to move north, trying to move out of southeast
technologies to enable faster, safer passenger trains on all of our existing rail corridors. with years of solid planning in place, illinois and its midwest partners were ready to move quickly on april 16 in 2009 when president obama called for a national network that connected high-speed rail corridors. secretary lahood earlier compared the president's vision to the 1950's blueprint for building the u.s. interstate highway system. the federal railroad administration reported illinois $1.2 billion in january 2010 to upgrade service between dwight and east st. louis. the government illinois in full partner with his commitment of $400 million in state funds for high-speed rail from his $31 billion capital program. federal awards also provided funding to construct a key rail flyover in the englewood neighborhood of chicago's south side to improve mobility. and for the chicago detroit corridor, the next expected route. illinois has a vested $200,00 in that route in cooperation with michigan and indiana. work is progressing to provide needed training which will enable high-speed service to c
